A Little Shopping Trip: Frankfurt Record Fair June 2012
I hopped over to Frankfurt for a spot of record shopping. The fair itself is a bit outside of town but within easy reach of the airport. It’s a friendly and pretty large fair with around 100 dealers. There’s plenty of vinyl, with a healthy amount of singles. I didn’t pick up tons of stuff, but a nice manageable selection including:
The Dictators single. Interesting to see Heartache earning A side status giving the band a powerpop.angle for the record company to work on. Other highlights include a perfect copy of The Balls and American Machine. Also picked up bunch of Rattles singles including the the weird OTT opus Mr…Keep Your Hands Off My Sister (spread over 2 sides) and the Shop 15 promotion single.
Staying in Rattles territory, I finally got the Propeller LP. Featuring Achim Reichel and Herbert Hilderbrandt, it’s great hard hitting stuff and of course features the personal favourite Apache Woman
An alternative to Frikadelen?
